Thread: Casio Watches for Holiday Gifts this year - What are you giving?

  1. #1

    Casio Watches for Holiday Gifts this year - What are you giving?

    Thought this might be a fun thread topic ------ What Casio or G-Shock are you giving people as gifts this year for the holidays?

    I have 3 nice ones picked out so far. And each will fit the individuals needs (I hope).

    GW-6900 for my brother - he works out and does more extreme things in life and for fun.

    PROTREK PRG-270 for my dad - he hikes, backpacks, kayaks and canoes. He also works with the Boyscouts.

    G9000 Mudman for my brother-in-law - he works in a muddy and dusty outdoor environment.

    Slightly used G-5500TS-9 for my 12-year old son.

    Photo taken by him, because he already got the watch. 8-)

    That is great! Very colorful. Is that a rare model? I have only seen those in black and in grey.

    What a great gift - and he took a nice photo of it too.

    Can we count gifts we are giving ourselves? My sons already has a beater watch until he is older. No one else I know cares about or wears a watch. Not even my wife.
    If the answer is yes, then I have something special inbound for me. Shh! it's a secret.

    Yes, gifts for yourself count as well. What do you have on the way to you? I am thinking about ordering something for myself too as a gift.

    It's too bad some people aren't aware of how nice having a watch is. You don't have to dig your smartphone out of your pocket or purse, just turn your wrist and know the time.

    I am giving myself 3 watches for Xmas. To be honest,after 2 months not buying a single G,i had to give myself a G,or two...... One is not a G.

    First G is a special one. Its a DW-5600VT. Special because it a Suntory branded G. Suntory is a Japanese brewery,brewing beer and whisk(e)y.
    As far as i found,it was never on sale,but a giveaway. Sweeptake is the proper name?

    Great gifts! Your son's eyes are going to bulge and his jaw will drop when he opens a Rangeman! Wow, to be 9 and getting an amazing dream-gift. He is very lucky. Your daughters are getting some nice watches as well, great taste in watches.

    I've already have enough of the runners Casio's (2XWS-220, G-7700, DW-56RTB,SGW-200, and a just sold GD-200). But man that Phys STW-1000 sure looks sweet.
